Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) is criticizing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for what the congressman calls a \u201cdisgusting and reckless" new spending bill that increases spending across the board.\r\n\u201cThis spending proposal is disgusting and reckless\u2014the biggest spending increase since 2009,\u201d Amash tweeted\u00a0at the Senate Majority Leader. \u201cI urge every American to speak out against this fiscal insanity.\u201d\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/justinamash\/status\/961303715100741632\r\n\r\nAmash\u2019s tweet came after McConnell encouraged Senators to vote for the new spending legislation in order to prevent another government shutdown. "This bill represents a significant, bipartisan step forward," McConnell tweeted Wednesday. "I urge every Senator to review this legislation and join in voting to advance it."\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/SenateMajLdr\/status\/961299456229609472\r\nAmash, a staunch fiscal conservative, has consistently argued for spending cuts in all areas funded by the federal government.\r\nThe bipartisan legislation would increase military and non-defense spending by $300 billion over the next two years, also adding more than $80 billion in disaster relief. Approximately $160 billion would go to the Pentagon, while $128 billion would go to non-defense programs.\r\nAnother tweet from Amash includes a chart illustrating that the federal government has spent $53 trillion dollars in the past ten years.\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/justinamash\/status\/961314935950233600\r\nFor Amash, passing short-term budgets with long-term increases in federal spending ultimately harms the American taxpayers.\r\nOn Tuesday, Amash tweeted an article from Reason magazine highlighting the dangers of misplaced trust in an incompetent government.\r\n\u201cGreat commentary on the dangers of becoming a \u201clow-trust\u201d country,\u201d Amash tweeted.\r\nAmash was joined in opposing the House version of the spending bill by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), who said the bipartisan deal goes \u201cabove and beyond spending caps.\u201d\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/RepThomasMassie\/status\/960933892202139648\r\nThe conservative House Freedom Caucus supported the spending bill, despite the protests of conservative Republicans like Amash, Massie and others, while the libertarian House Liberty Caucus, chaired by Amash, opposed the legislation.\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/libertycaucus\/status\/960989141482733568\r\nThe bill passed the House 245-182. The New York Times reported Wednesday that Senate leaders seemed to have a reached a deal on the legislation.
